5:17 pm
tomorrow. you can see the storm track is off to the north and at least to start the workweek, not much change. high pressure will hold its ground keeping most of the action to the north but we'll see big changes come wednesday night into thursday as the jet stream takes a dive to the south. that will open to much cooler air and the weather system will drop out of british columbia and slide into the bay area so your impact will be seeing some rain coming back in. not too heavy. even in the wettest spots in the bay area. what we'll do is bring in that cooler air. cold enough for slow as low as 3,000 feet. parts of the santa cruz mountains, generally above 3,500 feet. we'll see a chance of a few flurries. with that cold air coming in, mixed in with a little daytime sunshine. a slight risk of some thunder. the active days will be thursday into friday. tomorrow morning, some areas of low clouds. it looks like summer when you see the fog spill inland across the golden gate.
5:18 pm
we're at another sunny day tomorrow. one a lot like today. with the clouds coming in and patchy fog should not be too chilly. upper 30s to some mid 40s tomorrow morning. as we head into the $gentleman. low 60s. a bit warmer. i think around the south bay. 64 degrees around santa cruz tomorrow. 65 in pleasanton and low 60s from oakland. close to 60 in san francisco. 61 in santa rosa. napa looking pretty nice. the warmest and driest days of the week. the next three days. then thursday into friday, a chance of seeing some snow on those higher bay area peaks and finally the sierra should get some snow. maybe a half foot to a foot of snow. then the pattern resets. good timing for weekend plans. february starting off very dry around the bay area. >> thank you.

5:22 pm
hard to miss. according to several sources within the aviation and emergency manage many community, it was only once the stadium started rising in the distance did top officials begin exploring the implications of 68,000 fans packed into a stadium located right off the end of two major runways. >> you have to be in two-way communication to even fly anywhere near that airport in the first place. >> reporter: he's been flying private airplanes all over the bay area his entire life. he serves as vice president of operations. >> whenever there's a football game on or a baseball game or any large gathering, people at a stadium, they put into what they would call temporary flight redistributions. tfrs. >> reporter: the fax confirms there will be a trr in place whenever there is a football game or other big event. has the video shows, commercial flights literally pivot right over top of the new stadium when landing from the north, south on
5:23 pm
to runways 12 l or 12 r of with tv helicopters, banner planes and occasional blimp hovering overhead, that could make for crowded skies in a much heavier boring load for air traffic control. >> it is the landing, if they're landing 12. i don't know what they would do. they're going to have to think about that. >> reporter: the trouble is three different aviation sources say that not a lot of thought has gone into that so far. they believe commercial air traffic landing over the new 49ers stadium during a game could significantly raise air traffic controllers' workload and procedures. procedures the faa confirm they are only now beginning to work out. >> commercial aviation gets priority over everything. they won't change that. >> reporter: the faa spokesperson confirms it saying we wouldn't allow any activity that interferes with the arrivals or departures out of san jose. but the sources we spoke with
5:24 pm
remain skeptical and concerned. they say local air traffic controllers were not consulted or included in the aviation planning around the stadium. and look at these drawings which show parts of the new stadium like light towers and antennas, exceeding the maximum height originally allowed in this faa study. the faa says those height limits have been studied individually and do not pose any threat to safety. >> of course, that was a consideration for thing like general aviation to ensure during game days, we would coordinate appropriately. >> reporter: jamie matthews says the city has been planning for many of these issues long before the new stadium was even announced. >> that's part of the overall security plan. to ensure we have an appropriate flight path and clearance. we work very close when i the airport, the faa and of course with our public safety team. >> reporter: nbc bay area news. mayor matthews tells the investigative unit that the security planned for the stadium is still, quote, a work in progress. he said he is confident they

a restaurant super bowl goal in the bay area is complete but it took going into overtime to meet it. >> pizza my heart set a goal to make three tons of pizza by noon. that's about 700 pizzas going to bay area homes. they didn't make all the pizzas by the 3:00 p.m. deadline. the rush of business kept them busier than expected. in the end it took until 4:00 to make all three tons of pizza. it is still a win.
5:28 pm
>> not bad. i think we should get some pizza around here, don't you think? >> there you go. all right. so rob, what can we expect? we got a little warm-up? >> yeah. the next two days. if you want to do a mountain >> that would be a perfect way to get out. if you try that thursday, not so much. some rain is coming in and maybe some snow on those bay area peaks. about 3,000 feet. thats a big turn in the forecast. second half of the week. >> if you're going biking, bring your chains. >> thanks for watching nbc bay area news at 5:00. on this sunday night, twist of fate. a decorated former navy s.e.a.l., the united states' military's most lethal sniper, is shot and killed in texas. tonight, the remarkable life of chris kyle and what we know about the suspect. fight over guns as the president makes his case for
